Cutting up photos made easy

Favorite graphic arts, graphics, photography Apps Sometimes you simply have a good reason to tear or cut up a photograph. A relationship that ended, an annoying mother in law, friends or a boss who are too interfering.
      Cut to your heart's content, release your emotions and shred those photographs. Cut out the disturbing factors and experience the sound of paper tearing. It all becomes even more dramatic with different backgrounds and filters.
